We have implemented a special skill development programme called "Product Design Engineer" from 5th semester onwards through M/s KH Designs Bangalore (Partner SIEMENS/ NASSCOM). They will be industry-ready and training cost, time and efforts from industry side will be saved.

They are trained for job role Product Design Engineer” - Mechanical. It’s a SSC NASSCOM certified course and they get trained over a period of 3 semesters (5, 6 and 7th sem). Presently 49 students completed the training and another 48 students completed the first module. Few of the trained students have already secured the internships in Industries with job offers too. Intention of this training is not only to maximize the campus placements but also to get right skills at the right time.

An Industrial Visit was organized by the Department of Mechanical Engineering to Karnataka Soaps and Detergents Limited Bengaluru, Titan Industries Hosur and TTK Prestige Hosur with a total of 50 members including 47 students of 5th and 7th Semester and 3 staff coordinators departed from Mangalore on the 9th of November 2017. With great enthusiasm the team proceeded for the industrial visit on 10th of November 2017.

Titan Industries Ltd., Hosur, Tamil Nadu.

Date: 10/11/2017

Titan Industries is the world's fifth largest watch manufacturer and India's leading producer of watches under the Titan, Raga, Orion, Nebula, Octane etc. The main focus of the industry was on production of gears, small parts, etc. and assembly of watches. The guide assigned to the students gave a brief overview of the industry. He began explaining about the basic procedures required to follow while building a simple wrist watch and mentioned about the minute details that need to be taken care of in the production of watches.

Visit Observations:

  1. The entire plant was maintained at a cool temperature in order to facilitate the working of the machines.

  2. The small gear like structures which looked like scrap metal were only seen properly when observed under a microscope.

  3. Various safety measures were equipped such as placing the machines inside yellow lines on the floor and the visitors were asked to not cross these yellow lines.

  4. Most of the assembly line processes of wrist watches were automated with the use of robots. Only inspections were done manually.

  5. The watches which are not made of 24carat gold are actually made out of brass and then plated with the required colour.

During the full session students had a tremendous amount of interaction with the guide with goal to grasp even more. The visit was concluded with a visit to the factory outlet.


TTK Prestige Ltd., Hosur, Tamil Nadu.

Date: 10/11/2017

TTK Prestige is the leading manufacturer of pressure cookers in the whole of south India. In the beginning of the session the team was enlightened about the history of the company followed by the advantages and necessities of using a pressure cooker. The evolution of pressure cooker was an interesting topic to learn about.

Visit Observations:

  1. Various punching processes for manufacturing of cookers were involved. A typical assembly line of various numbers of employees was equipped for better productivity. The presence of each employee is necessary to begin production.

  2. Finishing processes such as polishing and buffing are done by wearing a protective gear.

  3. After the cleaning of utensils various fixtures are attached, the inspections are done manually and packed up.

  4. The packed boxes are weighed again so as to detect any kind of defect or missing accessory.

The visit was concluded with a Complementary mini lunch offered by TTK Prestige.

Karnataka Soaps and Detergent Factory Limited, Bengaluru, Karnataka.

Date: 11/11/2017

The Government Sandalwood Oil factory was established by the Maharaja of Mysore His Highness Nalwadi Krishna Raja Wodeyar and Diwan Sir, M. Visvesvaraya, during the year 1916 at Mysore, to extract Sandalwood Oil from Sandalwood. Unlike an auditorium, an open-air session was conducted, about the advantages, medical importance and significance of Sandalwood tree was explained in a very brief manner. We were provided with immense amount of knowledge about sandalwood trees and its properties.

Visit Observations:

  1. Large containers filled with various ingredients for the making of sandal soap.

  2. The mixture was heated for hours until it turns to a curd like solution which is later cooled naturally. This cooling might take a time span of 2-3 days.

  3. The soaps are cut into the basic shape and manual packaging is done.

The industry had a factory outlet with discounted rates for the visitors.

This industrial visit was a great success as the amount of knowledge gained about ‘how an industry works’ and the management skills required to run an industry would be of great importance for all the members present.
